I'm sure he'll get it from some KHL team.

The question to ask then is why Fisher is making $4.2M.

This idea that agents have that one GM has to pay stupid money just because another one made a mistake and paid it in the past is getting quite old and tired.

Antropov is worth somewhere between $3.5M - $4M tops. If he doesn't want to play for that, the GMs should let him go back to Siberia to play.

Well I hope Burke keeps his hands clapping and his pen in his inside pocket. Applaud him for wanting so much, turn around and walk away laughing hysterically. Toronto can put $5mil to better use than that!

Who is going to pay that? Seriously.... $4.5 million for a two-time 20-goal scorer who has never had a single 60 point NHL season?

oilers


if the oilers can move Penner--they will re invest the money into Antropov and then the oiler board takes a contract out on Antropov's life

5 million for a second liner is outrageous. He'll eventually settle for something between 3 - 4 million (I hope).

Antropov is not as good as he thinks he is, but he's getting a bit underrated on hfboards. Look at his stats for the last four seasons:

05-06: 57gp 12g 19a 31pts

06-07: 54gp 18g 15a 33pts

07-08: 72gp 26g 30a 56pts

08-09: 81gp 28g 31a 59pts

I'd say that he's about a 55pt player. If he can stay healthy, than he should be worth about 3.5 or 4 million per. Five million is obviously excessive for a solid second line player, and I hope, as a Rangers fan, that Sather does not resign him for that, but Antropov is not a scrub like some people seem to think he is.

He's a good player. A solid, streaky, 2nd line, b-level winger in the NHL. I just think he'd be far overpaid at 5 million. If you can get him at 3.0 to 3.5 then that's a good deal. I think 4 is a bit much and 5 is just ridiculous imo.

Antropov just isn't one of those players you should dish out cash for. He's an underachiever with consistency issues and no gamebreaking ability. He's not a heart and soul player and, again, his talent just ain't that great. Either that or he hasn't found a way to make himself effective. His potential is, like you said, only around 55 points. Plus he can't stay healthy. This is why people don't want him unless he's cheap. It's just not a smart move to throw many eggs into the Antropov basket.

Lupul is about to make 4.25. And if he isn't scoring...he isn't doing much either. But Surely every GM will say...I'm not going to make a stupid deal just because others have.

I'm going to have to disagree. He is worth $3.5M, maybe $4M to a team that is solid need for a top-6 player.

He's coming off his best season ever, he's a 55-ish point kind of player, but he brings other things to the table. Even though he's slow, he works hard. He'll play in front of the net if he needs too, he'll bang along the boards, and he plays a good defensive game. A few years back, he was an excellent PKer for Toronto.

But, he's also got injury concerns. I think he's stayed relatively healthy the past couple of seasons, but before that you couldn't keep him in the lineup.

Luckily, Sather said he won't sign Antropov because his asking price is way to high.

Man it would've been nice if he showed this type of restraint THE LAST 2 YEARS!!!!

IF the move Penner. Ok. So that means another team has to take on a relatively bad contract to make this other relatively bad contract happen. Things have tightened up with the amount of stupid contracts out there soaking up cap space -- I don't see anyone lining up in the current cap uncertainty to make that happen.

All the teams dumb enough to pay $5 million for Nik Antropov have already blown their money signing other players to overpriced contracts.


However, I think Gandler is going to have a lot of fun this summer shouting "No Nik for you!" into his phone.

Well, I don't necessarily think its smart. I like Antropov, but 4.5-5 is a bit rich if the cap goes down. If I had to bet on a team that'll pay him that sort of money, it'd probably be Atlanta.
